  • "As a Christian home schooling single parent mother, I wanted my son to have the privilege of attending a Bible based Christian school. I had researched on the internet for at least a month to find a Christian school with high academics. I am very pleased to say this is the second year that my son has been enrolled in Enlightium Christian Academy. My son truly enjoy's his online courses and learning is something he looks forward to! I must say that I feel the curriculum is a higher standard of learning, which ensures me that my son is above the mark for where he needs to be. The teacher's at ECA are extremely nice, helpful and quick to answer any question he or I may have. It is a blessing to watch my son became such a well rounded fine young boy. ECA is not just an online school to us....ECA is absolutely part of our family that makes learning complete! Thank you everyone at ECA!"

    - Stacie H. MA

  • "I am a parent of a Enlightium Christian Academy student. I am so grateful for the opportunity for my daughter to finish her last year of high school with Enlightium Christian Academy. She has learned much more with Enlightium Christian Academy than she did in public school. She actually looks forward to doing her homework. Every time she needs help with a problem a teacher is always readily available to help. If I as a parent am needing to know how my daughter is doing with her school work, I can easily log in and check her progress. Enlightium Christian Academy is a school that I would highly recommend to any parent who needs a good education for their children. Thank you, Enlightium Christian Academy."

    - Angela Proffitt, TN

  • "Our children were in a "PACE" school before. We just felt it was not the best God had for our children. We looked online to find a program that could be done online. That's when we found Enlightium Academy. The cost was excellent and our kids, ages sixteen and eleven, loved it. They found it challenging and the flexibility is great for them and us. This is our second year with Enlightium Academy and we are very pleased with how staff keeps us informed of our children's progress. God Bless."

    - Chuck Kerr, WV

  • "I would gladly refer anyone to this school. I researched many online studies for my son Jonathon. He is very pleased and so am I. The staff is very supportive and the courses are excellent. We are extremely pleased with Enlightium Academy’s home school study and regard it as a great blessing!!!"

    - Theresa Key, TN

  • "I love Enlightium Christian Academy. It is homeschooling that gives accountability from a Christian perspective. I can still help my daughter along with her studies and she feels confident in her work. The curriculum is very dynamic and keeps the student engaged. I think this is great for older students who want the independence but may need some extra help sometimes. The staff is also so very helpful and nice. Thanks, Enlightium Academy, for giving my daughter a second chance!"
